In each human cell there are 46 chromosomes. 22 pairs and the x and the y 
chromosome possibility.  Chromosome thirteen refers to the thirtheenth 
pair of chromosomes in the human cell.  Everyone has two of these 
chromosomes.  The difference between a boy and a girl is that the girl has 
two X chromosomes for the 23 pair where a boy has one x and one y for the 
thwenty-third pair.  

I hope this helps you with your project.
